Kara-Tara is a new joint-venture between Rudger van Wyk and José Conde of Stark-Condé Wines. Stark-Condé were named in the ‘First Growth’ category of Tim Atkin’s special report on South Africa in 2019 whilst winemaker Rudger van Wyk was named Young Winemaker of the Year 2019.

Grapes for this wine are sourced from two 35-year old vineyards in the Western Cape region. All grapes were hand-picked into small lug boxes for transport to the winery. The grapes were pressed and allowed to settle naturally before being racked to 50% neutral oak and 50% stainless steel vats. After fermentation, the wine was matured in neutral oak. After 8 months on the lees, the wine was carefully racked, given a light fining and bottled with minimal filtration.

This wine has the classic notes of lemon and grapefruit you’d expect from Chardonnay, with hints of almond and a fine mineral finish.
